Elmer Hitch writes from Kua
tia. V., thai: "Wo wcro a week
on the road hut I enjoyed the trip
unywny; tun as far south as wo
can got without Bailing on the
water, and an near a 1 can learn
wo are about 4000 miles from Ore
gon. This is a now camp and
there is no town closo to go to so
it is pretty lonesome; noono hero
but soldiers and niters. There
is now about 4,600 soldiers here
but phi told there will be 180,000
hero in a short time, but I wont
be here as we go to Franco ba
fore long and the sooner tho bet
ter it will suit me. They havo
signed mo up for a truck driver
and guess I'll haul firing material
to the soldiers. From what they
tell tnc it is a dangerous job, but
I guess one job is about as full of
danger as another so I am satis
tied with anything thoy givo me
to do, just so I can get across on
German soil, and feel like I could
drive a truck up a tree if it were
leaning over a little bit."

Under the caption of "Where's

article appeared in last week's
Pino Valley Herald:
"Some time ago we read that a
road supervisor had been appoint
ed to look after. the whole county
road system. Perhaps it was so,
but we have been wondering.
We have never seen him in Pine
Vadoy or anywhere else around
here, and our roads certainly need
ti little attention. Wo were told
that ho would be furnished a car,
and expected that ho would be in
